hotdate 0.2.3

Intuitive date formatting.

Latest Version: 0.4.5

hotdate
=======

`hotdate` is a library for doing friendly date formating. It's in the same vein as [Moment.js]http://momentjs.com), which hotdate's API is based on.

`hotdate` wraps Python's builtin `datetime` object with a layer that simplifies some common operations that are annoying to do with `datetime`. More importantly, `hotdate` provides functionality for doing friendly/human-readable relative date formatting. It even has one of those crazy "fluent interfaces" that are so hip with the kids these days.

## A quick tour


### Construction

You can create hotdate objects in a bunch of ways.

```python
from hotdate import hotdate

# get the current time and date
>>> hotdate()
hotdate(2014, 3, 4, 21, 34, 3, 661600)

>>> hotdate(2011)
hotdate(2011, 1, 1, 0, 0)

>>> hotdate('2012 03', '%Y %m')
hotdate(2012, 3, 1, 0, 0)

d = datetime.datetime.now()
>>> hotdate(d)
hotdate(2014, 3, 4, 21, 34, 3, 661600)

```

### Formatting

You can use it to format dates:


```python

>>> hotdate().format()
'2014-03-04T21:46:18'

```

```python

>>> hotdate().format('%c')
'Tue Mar 4 21:47:03 2014'
```

### "How long ago?"

```python

>>> hotdate().from_now()
'just now'

>>> hotdate(2011).from_now()
'2 years ago'

>>> hotdate().add(minutes=30).from_now()
'29 minutes from now'
```

### Calendar date formatting

```python

>>> hotdate().calendar()
'Today at 09:50PM'

>>> hotdate().add(days=1).calendar()
'Tomorrow at 09:51PM'

>>> hotdate().subtract(days=4).calendar()
'Last Friday at 09:51PM'

>>> hotdate(2011).calendar()
'1/1/2011'
```
